Karimunjawa Gives Days for Forever Holiday – Have you ever imagined that just on the Java Sea, a hidden paradise is waiting for us to be explored?
At first, I was only able to imagine it and was quite satisfied to witness the natural beauty of Karimunjawa from televisions, pictures, and writings that I found on the internet.
All the pictures were amazing. I couldn’t even believe that ocean had really beautiful colors from green and blue to turquoise. I can’t remember how many times I looked at the pictures and every time I did, I was always amazed.
New conscience started to fill my mind, the paradise couldn’t be reached if I were just sitting in front of my computer. Somehow I needed to be there, to feel by myself paradise getaway.
“And the journey had finally begun”
Though Karimunjawa is a part of the Jepara administrative region it can be reached from two places, Tanjung Mas Harbor which is located in Semarang, and Kartini Harbor which is located in Jepara.
If you would take the fast boat, Tanjung Mas is the right option to get to Karimunjawa within 3,5 hours.
But if you were a backpacker and willing to feel the more traditional boat, a ferry that takes 6 hours, you may choose Jepara as your first starting point.
I had felt by myself both fast boat and ferry and based on my own opinion, taking ferry gave me the special impression.
I could just relax on the deck, sit for hours, chat with other passengers, play cards with some friends, and enjoy myself surrounded by the sea. After almost 6 hours on the sea, the ferry called Muria berthed at the Karimunjawa Port.
The port was totally different from what you have in Java for instance.
It’s considerably quiet with only one building and no other ships that berthed there unless Muria.
And you must see the water, very clear; you can even look into the deepest and see hundreds of fishes swimming around the ferry.
As now one of the most favorite holiday destinations, Karimunjawa has many places to stay from the cheapest to the most expensive such as Kura Kura resort.
If you had a limited budget, you may choose to stay in a local house that is offered for about $2 – $3 for a night. Homestay can also be a good option and cost you about $6 -$10 per room for a night.
If you liked to go for higher price, some hotels are available with air conditioner in about $15 – $100 per room for a night. But no matter how much your budget is, you should try to stay at least one night in Wisma Apung Karimunjawa.
